As always, I would be remiss if I didn’t point out how stunning this cover is. Rosemary never fails to deliver a beautiful cover, which is just a slight indication of how great the book is that you’re about to read.
Violet is now about to join the legion, she must do so if she wants to keep her family together. She must do so because she wants to meet the half-brother she never knew she had. The brothers in the Legion have been raised to believe that all vampires were to be taken down, which doesn’t sit well with our half angel, half vampire Violet. But, falling prey to Rahab’s whims, she is sent on the Mage quest, something no one before her has ever achieved. The more she tries to save her family, the harder Rahab makes it for her.
But Violet may not be able to save everyone and she may lose a lot of herself in the process.
I love where Rosemary has taken the direction of this series. I love how strong and fierce Violet is, but she makes mistakes, a lot of them. But everything she does is to keep her makeshift family together and safe. This is such a fantastical world, everything from the characters to the scenery is vividly explored. Another home-run in the Rebel Angels series.
